Description

"Eat Like the Animals is a must-read. This beautifully written book proposes a highly original and compelling explanation for why so many of us gain weight in today's over­processed food environment. Raubenheimer and Simpson are biologists who use their deep knowledge of animal and insect physiology, evolution, and feeding behavior to construct a compelling hypothesis: We share with animals an innate appetite for protein that regulates what we eat."
-- MARION NESTLE, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, Emerita, New York University and author of Unsavory Truth

"At last a book on diet and nutrition that makes sense. In a world awash with misinforma­tion about what and when to eat, Eat Like the Animals is a breath of fresh air. I couldn't put it down. Based on more than 30 years of cutting-edge research, it explains how the modern food environment hacks our hunger control system, then explains what we all should be eating to live healthily and age well."
-- DAVID SINCLAIR, Professor of Genetics and co-Director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging, Harvard Medical School and author of Lifespan: Why We Age-- and Why We Don't Have To

"Eat Like the Animals is a wonderfully clever and unusual introduction to the science of healthy eating. Full of drama, insight, and surprise, I love the way it is written. Rauben­heimer and Simpson make a very compelling case for the importance of protein in reg­ulating our hunger and very powerfully demonstrate the horrific role that the junk food industry has played in our lives. Essential reading."
-- DR. MICHAEL MOSLEY, author of The Fast 800 and The Fast Diet

"Eat Like the Animals is quite simply a masterpiece. I am completely blown away by the science and enthralled by the clarity and elegance of the writing. Raubenheimer and Simpson have revealed the deep evolutionary secrets of the most important physiological need any animal faces by asking the right questions, and have eviscerated all the charla­tans, quacks, and pseudoscientists who seek fame and fortune by peddling rubbish. The story the authors have told is very important -- more so than many people will realize."
-- DR. GEORGE McGAVIN, zoologist and nature television host

"Whether readers are drawn to the book's health takeaways or to the scientific nitty-gritty, they will find much food for thought in this fascinating study." --Publishers Weekly
